Zoom
  • Add to Calendar 2020-05-15 18:00:00 2020-05-15 19:00:00 Deconstructing Design -- with Elanur Erdogan In this talk, Elanur Erdogan will share the story of her career as a designer. As a designer Elanur constructs literal methods to communicate abstract ideas. She will dissect her distinct creative process and how she takes an idea and constructs it into a physical product. This discussion will be followed by a demonstration of how she has come to naturally dye her textiles at home with repurposed materials. The talk will conclude with an audience Q&A. Elanur is a designer, stylist, and artist born and raised in New York. She graduated from Parsons New School for Design with BFA in Fashion Design. From then went on to work at Iris van Herpen in Amsterdam where she was inspired to build her own artisanal womenswear brand DOBS NY upon her return to New York in 2015. The brand gained recognition through its approach solely creating with repurposed materials down to personal food scraps that she repurposed to manipulate the garments. More recently Elanur has expanded her horizons as a stylist in fashion/entertainment, working with costume designers such as B. Akerlund and Ane Crabtree. As a craftsman herself, her passion lies in supporting the work of independent artists and designers.
